Description

Porsche planned to enter the ‘Group 4’ Sports Car Class for Le Mans in 1980 and based their car on their successful 924 mainstream model.  All non-essential elements were removed from the car in an effort to reduce weight. The vehicle was subsequently entered into the gruelling 24 Hours of Le Mans but, in order to comply with homologation regulations, a number of road-going versions had to be produced and Porsche addressed this rule with the Carrera GT.

Standard specification included a close ratio, dog-leg, 5-speed gearbox, Bilstein shock absorbers, polyurethane plastic front and rear flared guards, a polyurethane plastic front spoiler, and a bonnet mounted air scoop for the intercooler. With a 2-litre turbocharged engine producing 210bhp, it would reach a top speed of 150mph and hit 60mph in an impressive 6.5 seconds.

One of only 524 cars produced this exceptionally rare example has been kept in its original condition without any modifications.
